Hard Waste Verge Collection

We provide two hard waste verge collections per year.

Please think of others and do not put anything on verges outside of collection dates. Waste left on the verge can be unsightly or hazardous.

Any waste left on the verge outside collection dates MUST BE REMOVED IMMEDIATELY or you may incur a litter infringement notice.

Remember, do NOT put out any prunings or garden waste – these will be collected on a different date.
